We had a lovely stay at Aghadoe. The staff were some of the most friendly and professional I have encountered and made our stay very enjoyable. The views of the Killarney lakes from the hotel alone make it worth a visit!

the main thing that made our stay so wonderful was that every member of staff without exception was kind, cheerful, pleasant and good humoured. It makes such a difference when the dynamic is so well orchestrated.

We had last been at Agahadoe 15 years ago, so it felt like a real treat to return as a family of five. The hotel is working hard to manage its Covid protocols which largely worked out well - there were some minor issues with pool bookings/ allowed numbers and there was one day in our week where something was clearly misfiring in the breakfast/ kitchen service but the staff were all working really hard, responsive, attentive and enthusiastic. The Lounge food offering is excellent and represents some decent value given the quality and the setting. Our family interconnecting Bedrooms were excellent, good size and well equipped. The view alone over the lakes would bring me back again!

Lake Room Dinner - Delicious and good value Afternoon Tea - Service was slow. No leaf tea and not enough tea options. Coeliac option very limited. Gluten free bread too dry and gluten free items bought in and not fresh. Afternoon tea was disappointing for a five star hotel.

This is most definitely not a 5 star hotel. Service was terrible, rooms and bathrooms dirty. Took photos. Reception staff rude. Service staff either making mistakes with orders, bringing the wrong food , dishes. Forgetting drinks. ***Worst part was the food. The food was terrible, Outrageously overpriced, very small on the portion side. €30 for a small chicken breast on a tablespoon of mash potato celeriac, which was disgusting. Eton mess ended up being 90fl oz of whipped cream with no merrignue for €9.50. So we ended up dining at the Europe Hotel nearby, which ironically was cheaper, service was fantastic as they were older and professionally trained and the food was amazing... this is a 5 star hotel. Their Eton Mess was superb, as was the chicken and the entire menu, so much choice, and variety. A real modern menu too. AG Hotel really old fashioned menu, not classical, just old and boring. Next time we go to Kerry we will stay in the Europe . Left AG Hotel gutted, extremely disappointed and annoyed that they promote their hotel as a 5 star and a website that promotes a hotel which looks nothing like the real thing. On departure the rudest receptionist ( didn't get her name but she was a woman say 30-40's tight face with blonde /light brown ponytail, too much botox and false eyelashes) simply handed us the bill. We paid . We were not asked how was our stay. Needless to say, we left and we wont be back. Made sure we've informed anyone who will listen to us. As you can probably tell we are still very annoyed as it was our only holiday away this year due to Covid and it was most certainly overshadowed by AG hotel.

Unfortuantely and surprisingly to me, we were very disappointed with the service here. We were looking forward to our post lockdown treat. My elderly mother in law's first outing since cocoooning. They did not have our table ready when we arrived. They had no soda water. They had no carlsberg. They kept opening the door out onto the balcony which blew my napkin off my lap several times and even blew the visor off the poor waiter's face. I have been to the spa here a few times and loved this hotel so I was not expecting it this terrible service. We were also celebrating my daughter's 13th birthday. As she had missed out on confirmation and end of year in school etc, this was meant to be our treat which all of us were looking forward to. When my son asked if they could put a candle on his sister's dessert when it came out, the waiter said he would try to have a look to find one"!!!! Needless to say, it didn't arrive. I also had to approach them for the dessert menu as they didn't come near us. I just didn't have the heart to complain and paid for our lunch which wasn't too over priced to be fair and the food was lovely but all in all, not in any way what you would expect from a hotel of it's standard! So much for our treat!

While I do take the covid-19 situation into account we felt our stay overall was very poor for the cost of everything especially the accommodation and food. Also, we felt the swimming pool area was extremely dirty and I actually ended up getting a cold sore on my lip for the first time in many years which my wife who is a Nurse believes was due to this dirt and lack of maintenance. Overall, we would not recommend anyone staying at the hotel for the costs involved and I think they will be very lucky to hold on to their 5 or even 4 star rating going forward.

Found the Service not acceptable, waited for over an hour for breakfast and ended up leaving without having a breakfast. Dinner night before was the same very slow we were 2 hours and forty five minutes. It was not that busy, just waiters forgetting about tables. Not five star won't be back.

It was wonderful to get away from it all and enjoy break in this beautifully located and relaxing hotel. This was their first weekend open and everybody was doing their best to adapt to new regulations. Really difficult for the staff but they could not do enough to ensure our comfort. We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back again.

The staff who served us yesterday were very professional and friendly. We ended up staying for nearly 6hrs because we never felt we were being rushed out which was a change from.other places we have been and for this reason I would definitely recommend the aghadoe heights for afternoon tea or if you just want to meet up with friends and have a relaxing drink.

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea experience. The service from all members of staff was polite, efficient and friendly. We had a lovely table overlooking the lake and the atmosphere was very nice. Everything was presented really well and was delicious. We will definitely be back!

I feel what you advertise on your website is not what you get. Your photographer needs a raise because the pictures on your website are brilliant but then thats not what you get. The food is very average, and extremely overpriced. €15 for a prawn starter and then you get 4 prawns ? €22 for a burger ?? That is mental prices. Had afternoon tea one of the days and all the breads were hard and stale. No atmosphere at all, only music played at dinner is a cd that you repeat. The pool is out dated. I was so underwhelmed with the visit, i have been in far superior 3 star hotels let alone a 5 star. On a plus side your staff are fantastic, especially the girls on reception, very helpful and polite.

Our final bill billed us for 3 meals instead of 1 which we thought was bad. The receptionist didnt seem to think it was. It was only when we queried it twice that it was removed.
